    Default Xbox problem "please insert xbox format disc"

    ok i am fixing a friends xbox because hes to afraid to take things apart. it keeps asking to inset an xbox disc even when you put one in, i have been using my copy of SneakKing from BK but other dont work aswell.

    i am thinking the pots need to be adjusted which i know is most of the time only temporary before it up and dies but i cant find them.

    it spins up fine but the laser keeps focusing and it wont go.

    the drive is a SDG-605 and i guess the xbox part number is X00603-006

    if some one can tell me where the pot is or if it has one thatd be cool.

    I say replace the cd rom. Get one cheap off of ebay. Messing around with the lens strength can be more trouble than it is worth and the cd roms can be bought and replaced with little effort.
